Fisher Price Little People Stand & Play Racetrack: Toddler Tested, Parent Approved
The Fisher-Price Wheelies Little People Stand n' Play race track is an excellent toy for toddlers. We bought this toy race track for my daughter for her first birthday and it has been a great investment. We live in a small condo so when we buy toys we look for ones that will last a long time and that can be added on to. The Little People Wheelies raceway exceeds these expectations.
What You Get:
The race track comes comes with two ramps. The tight spiral ramp finishes with a stop sign and gas pump and there are cool sound effects as the car is being tuned up (batteries required). The second ramp meanders from one side to the other, has a flip sign that spins as the cars race through and finishes with a lever that raises as the car approaches.
There is a large manual elevator that can take a car from the ground up to the top of the ramp and a smaller one for make believe tune-ups.
The unit has a built in handle for easy transport and there is plenty of room for car storage around the base and on two balconies. Two cars are included.
Sturdy for Toddlers Learning to Walk
Leading up to her first birthday by daughter would pull herself up to standing on anything she could get her hands on - coffee tables, chairs and toys. Most toys we had weren't sturdy enough to support her weight or were too small for this purpose so we wanted to buy a toy that was large enough and sturdy enough for her. The Stand n' Play Rampway is approximately two feet tall and can handle having a toddler lean on it.
The Race Track is Great for Younger and Older Kids
The manufacturer recommends this product for kids 18 months to 6 years. With supervision I see no problem with a one year old (or even an advanced 10 month old) using this product. When my daughter was one she wasn't coordinated enough to place the cars at the top of the ramps but she loved it if I put them at the top for her to push down. As she's gotten older she's learned to line them up with the ramps and loves racing the cars. This toy has been a huge hit whenever we have other kids over and even my nieces (who are 8 and 10) make a bee-line for the race track. It's great to know that even older kids love it.
You Can Easily Expand This Toy Race Track With More Cars
The Stand n' Play Rampway comes with two Little People cars but you can also buy more for this set. Last year I bought my little girl more cars as Christmas stocking stuffers and she was thrilled. But you can easily use other cars too. Recently we've acquired some HotWheels cars and they go really well with this set. We even have a toy bus that surprisingly fits down the ramps. In fact my daughter tests any new toy, regardless of whether or not it's a car, to see if it will go down the ramp.
There are many great collections of Little People Wheelies cars to expand your Race Track set:
The 'All About Racing' set is perfect for the Stand n' Play rampway and includes two race cars, a police car and a tow truck.
The 'All About Trucks' Wheelies set comes with a train car and three other trucks. What I like about this set is it includes two female drivers. I wanted my daughter to have both male and female car drivers to play with.
If your child is a fan of superheroes then this Little People car set will be a hit. The pack includes four cars driven by Batman, Joker, Superman and the Green Lantern.
